    Drop

    Got a Drop 2003. Like it so far. But they really upped the anti with the 2004s. Much better value for money.
    Upgrading to 6" travel link. Not too happy with the 5" Junior T.
    May PUSH the Vanilla R.
    How are you enjoying yours?

    Good job! yeah

    I got one-it is pretty good. I had millions of crank problems (cause of sqare heads or whatever) so I got a ISIS Giga-its beautiful. Yeah the shocks are great and everything too. I'm only 14 , but I swear I will be a pro when I get older thanks to Norco. I have only taken 2 or 3 foot drops with my Norco though. I am getting an '05 Atomik or Fuse as soon as they come out and I will be able to do a number with those.

    New bike (Fireball)

    Just received it last Friday and had 1 ride on it. A Norco Fireball for XC riding. I'm impressed with it so far.

    03 Team Race, it rocks! Feels much better than the Bullit it replaced.

    I had posted earlier that I was gonna get an 05 Atomik. Well, I changed my mind. (Or my parent's at least!)

    ... and if we just ... Started out on a Norco

    My first serious mountain bike was a '91 Norco Kokanee. Flourecent lime green...my god what were we thinking...lol Now I'm currently riding an '04 SIX. Though the only thing that resembles a six is the frame. Highly tricked out with Dangerboy, Race Face, E.thirteen and a Push'ed Vanilla RC. Oh, and I just added an '04 888r. All the components that I replaced on the six were done to upgrade the DJ frame that I'm building. They didn't break or go to waste. Well, the bottom bracket and stem did break, but other than that it's all COOL!

    I ride 2

    2001 Norco Fireball Race, 2002 Norco Shore, Love them both, the BIG bike is the most fun, but the XC turns hard work into gravy.

    Thanks man.

    When I got it i figured i'd never have to do anything to it...It was perfect.
    But...
    Upgradeitis is a serious illness and should be treated with lots of burrly anodized bits of aluminum.

    Here is the list soooo far.

    '04 888r
    Push'ed Vanilla RC Race Works
    Dangerboy levers and stem
    RaceFace Evolve DH crank and BB
    E.thirteen DRS chainguide
    Easton Cully pedals
    Gazza 2.6 on the front
    Kinetics 2.6 on the rear

    I love the Triple 8!!! So much smoother and 2 more inches than the stock Z150 and it weighs about 150 grams more.

    Norco has treated me well, from my '98 saquatch to a 2000 Torrent to an un used soon to be ss 2001 team frame. but when it came time to enter the squish end of the spectrem I had to jump ship. Norco six bike of the year... I don't think so, get me off the lift line and into the B.C. please. great all around HT's, good though limmited spectem FS bikes.
